Into the basement of the store build-
Ing and stole a tin box confining a
large amount of money from a secret
hiding place. A cash register contain
ing $15 was not touch' d.
That the men wire acquainted with
Felter and were aware of the fact that
he had considerable money in the store
Is evidenced by the fact that they w< vi
able to locate the tin box. According
to the police, the men were Identified
by six witnesses as Lewis Deck and
Loe Candelero of 1524 East Twenty-tilth
Street. Descriptions were furnished the
patrolmen from University station and
a dragnet spread over the neighbor
hood, but the men could not be located.
The men entered the store shortly
after 6 o'clock and started a conversa
tion with Felter. Finally they walked
to the rear of the store. According to
six boys who were playing in front of
the store at the time and were eye
•witnesses to the holdup, one of the men
picked tat> an ax and after threatening
Felter struck him on the head, causing
a. deep gash on his head and a frac
ture of his skull, and rendering him
unconscious. Before Felter was struck
the boys relate him as saying: "Please
don't kill me. You can have my
money." After knocking him to the
floor the br.ndits threw his body in the
basement and then secured the box
containing the money and made their
escape through a rear door. How much
money was contained In the box is not
known, as Felter was not married and
had few companion?.
Miss Esther Martin, who is said by
the police to be a woman companion
of Deck, was arested on suspicion late
last night and taken to central police
headquarters. She will be used as a
witness against Deck and Candelere in
case they are arrested.
The body of Felter was removed to
the John R. Paul undertaking parlors,
where efforts are being made to locate
his relatives. Until they are located
funeral arrangements will not be made.
